Q:

Find the Odd One Out of the following Number Series?

3, 14, 36, 67, 113, 168

A) 14 B) 36
C) 67 D) 113

Answer:   C) 67



Explanation:

Here the given number series is 3, 14, 36, 67, 113, 168

It follows a pattern that

3

3 + 1 x 11 = 3 + 11 = 14

14 + 2 x 11 = 14 + 22 = 36

36 + 3 x 11 = 36 + 33 = 69

69 + 4 x 11 = 69 + 44 = 113

113 + 5 x 11 = 113 + 55 = 168

 

Hence, the wrong number is 67.

271 + 36 = 307 (NOT 308)

307 + 25 = 332

332 + 16 = 348

348 + 9 = 357

 

Hence, the odd man in the fiven number series is 308.

1 + 1/2 = 3/2

3/2 + 1/2 = 2 (Not 6)

2 + 1/2 = 5/2

5/2 + 1/2 = 3

 

Hence, the odd man in the given number series is 6.
